Liri: I've just come online to dig out my seminal cake receipe as I taste tested my first gluten free dairy free fun free Christmas cake....BLEUGH. It has not turned out well.

So I was going to wipe up my favourite seminal instead.

Great minds etc.

Absolutely nothing to do with gardening too too

I always prefer to sniff test things rather than rely on a date.

Food I mean, not sexual partners. They don't even get the opportunity for a date if they fail the sniffles test.

Compost maker

I didn't know you could buy accelerator.

Spend your money on a second compost bin perhaps?

Kitchen Showrooms Nottingham

What the hell do people in Nottingham do in their kitchens? it's always kitchens from Nottingham? 

Now I know because of the lack of quality in their post it can't be because the good people of Nottingham are simply good at making kitchens. I mean if you're going to advertise (I use that term loosely when applied to this post) surely you don't intentionally go out to make yourself look like a complete shower of poo?

No one wants poo in their new kitchen.

Happy birthday Mr. Dove!

I'm not sure what today at work brings. I set my classroom up for activities on Wednesday ready for this week (get me being organised!) but left the lids on while the room was unsupervised. It'll be interesting to see

a) if staff left the door open

b) if parents ripped off said lids and proceeded to let all the mayhem break loose (normally what happens if you have ten really nice polite families use the activities and just as you start to relax a family come in that try to pull off all the display pieces that say don't touch, rearrange all the dressing up across the room (I have had to hunt the museum for items of clothing that they wandered off with before now), draw a solid line across every sheet of paper (so no other children will then use them), and try to break into the cupboard (disappointing for them there is never anything exciting in the cupboards), and charge their mobile phones (who brings a mobile phone charger with them to a museum??)

Still paint that smile on your face!

Dove: I've tried that. Plus applying feet to thigh and then pushing the dog do he has to fidget about and kick out. OH is still snoring away.

Hosta: enjoy your assessment. The amount of times you've said yes to extra hours already confirms you're good at your job! Drive safe.

A Gardener's Hands

Posted: 18/12/2016 at 07:34

I'd be no bloody good as a gardener if I had someone else's hands. Imagine trying to pot up my daffodils to find that actually these hands belong to my audiologist and the bulbs end up in everyone's ears.

Oh there'll be hell to pay come spring!

Morning all. Off out later to for some dog socialising with a dog getting over behavioural issues; his lordship wants to come with me so there'll be nothing done on the house today but it'll be nice to spend time with him. I just hope Reggie doesn't decide to play up because daddy is there. He always seems a bit funny when we go for walks together. I think daddy might be a bit lax on training.

Then it's bath time for Reggie; got to smell nice for Santa!

Very recently a friends wee lad received a gift from Hull fire service (a mobility scooter). It was on Look North but I missed it.

The powers of Facebook meant I got to see it just now. What struck me most was the picture of Joe as a baby, I'd never seen his baby photos before. Cute doesn't cut it he was adorable!! It did however make my do the proper crying and dribbly snot and full hand wavey nonsense (why do ladies wave their hands when they cry??) 

This is Joe:

Don't be taken in by that beautiful smile: he's no angel!

Fairy; are you sure these poles aren't for ball room dancing? They sound beautiful!
